We have been working with partner agencies and targeting rogue traders this week as part of a national week of action.

Rogue traders are criminals who charge homeowners extortionate rates for home or garden improvements which are overpriced, substandard or not required at all. These criminals tend to target elderly people who often suffer ill health after such a stressful experience.

Throughout the week police teams, Cadets and members of the Special Constabulary have been carrying out a range of activities including vehicle stop checks to ensure traders are operating legally, and running events and visiting community groups to raise awareness of this type of offending and other “door-step crime”, which can also include distraction burglary.

Visit our website and familiarise yourself with the crime prevention advice in relation to doorstep crime, then to speak to elderly relatives or friends about it. Help us keep them safe.

We’re sending out a clear warning to people driving cars and riding motorbikes or mopeds dangerously that they don’t have to be stopped at the time to end up in court.

The warning comes after a 23-year-old man from Westleigh Park, Hengrove, was disqualified from driving for 20 months, told to pay £165 in costs and sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for 20 months, after being charged with dangerous driving.

Former Clifton College teacher Jonathan Thomson-Glover has been jailed for 3 years and 9 months after admitting 36 counts of making, taking and possessing indecent images.

Thomson-Glover appeared before Taunton Crown Court this morning, where he pleaded guilty to the offences.

In summer 2014, the National Crime Agency contacted Devon and Cornwall Police about computer IP addresses being used to download indecent images of children.

This information led to warrants being executed at two properties in August 2014 – one in Devon and another in Wadebridge, Cornwall – resulting in Thomson-Glover being arrested.

A large number of VHS tapes, Hi8 discs, laptops and hard drives were seized and examination of these materials uncovered a large amount of images and footage taken using covert cameras. Our enquiries established these cameras had been placed within Clifton College and the property in Wadebridge.

Det Insp Andrea Kingdon said: “These crimes amounted to an abhorrent abuse of trust and a gross invasion of privacy."

If you need to contact one of the officers working on this investigation, please contact the Operation Initial team at Taunton Police Station via 101 or by emailing

If anyone is affected by this investigation and needs independent support and advice, Victim Support are a good first point of contact for victims of crime on 0808 1689 111 or contact Lighthouse Victim Support for a list of local support services.
